Last Thursday I had an all-day meeting in our Boston office. I assumed I would end up walking out with a long list of action items. What I did not anticipate was that I would end up joining my firm's GLBT affinity group.
Although I'm 100% out at work I never contemplated joining the firm's affinity group. I was a bit surprised by the request when it was made mostly because of the source and felt compelled to say yes, but now that I've given it some thought I think it might be both interesting and help me meet more co-workers here in Boston.
Does your employer have a GLBT affinity group and if so do you belong to it? If so,do you like it, or are the members reminiscent of those kids who would file off to band camp each summer?
